Born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Lisa developed a sharp wit and sense of humor that Newfoundlanders are known for. After starting a professional stand-up career on the island, she moved to Alberta, as Newfies tend to do, and worked her way through various industrial jobs, eventually settling on a trade. Lisa’s diverse background (single parent, tradesperson, university educated, proud Newfoundlander) has inspired her material and resulted in an eclectic collection of jokes that resonate with audiences all throughout Canada.
Lisa’s humor can definitely lean towards blue; however, she can navigate through events that call for clean material as easily as she can work an audience at an uncensored show. She has opened for Rob Schneider, Tom Green, and Paul Reiser; has been featured on CBC's LOL program, and will be featured at the YYComedy Festival in Calgary in the fall of 2017 on the Prairie All Stars Show. Lisa is currently travelling all over Western Canada, leaving audiences in stitches with her take on living and working in Alberta, parenting, and relationships, all while rocking that Newfoundland charm that Canadians know and love.
Keep an eye out for Lisa in the future; this comic is definitely going places!
